Is it a good idea to sanction outdoor encampments? How can "safe parking" play a role for people who are living in unsheltered situations? Discuss the legal, moral, political, and practical considerations of sanctioned encampments and other types of outdoor programs. If encampments are sanctioned, what is their role, what should their goals be, and how long they should be in place? Consider how providers interact with encampments, how the homeless response system could respond, and learn about costs of sanctioned encampments versus other interventions.
